Custom Card of the Day: Shane Battier Jump Shot 2011-2012   1 comment

Shane Battier Jump Shot custom cardHere is another custom card request. I don’t dabble in basketball much so this was a little different. My goal was to not only design a basketball card but to finish the complete card in a half hour. This took about 35 minutes between doing the logos and everything. I like the way it turned out, it is a design I would tweak more but it works. I came up with a nonsense name for the card brand to give it a custom card feel, however dorky it is, it is what I came up with.

The card’s color scheme is obviously taken from the team’s logo. This would be consistent for the other cards if I were to do more, I will probably do one or two more just for fun and to explore the color schemes. I’m not sold on what I did with the name block on the bottom, It looks a little clunky to me but this is exactly why I tried to give myself a time frame for making the card design. Any suggestions for another NBA player to do?

  1. This design doesn’t stand out well against the color scheme of my website. To see it well you should really click on it to get the card only page; it is on a white background.

    This looks like it could be a Fleer card, it really has that vibe.
